Hi I am getting ready for my first winter with 6x3 tub. I am in the northeast and would like to use my tub throughout winter without damageing it or just being not worth it. Ive heard about draining it and leaving a few inches in the bottom. Thats seems good if your not using it but what if I want to use it every week or every third week? What do you winter users do? I hear about using a stock tank heater to keep the water from freezing but again a stock tank is not 470 gallons and what size wattage one would I buy? I really want to be able to soak once a week or so in the coldest months of winter which around here drop between 10 to 20degrees. I dont want to worry if I dont soak one week that I have a block of ice. Seems like the safest way is to drain after using but thats alot of work for one soak .What about a fountain pump that circulates water. I am looking for real winter users to comment here and give me a heads up thanks!
